We also offer a special health focused menu at Arnou, created in collaboration with Aidan Hunter Fitness which offers a variety of breakfast, lunch, healthy drinks and snacks. This exclusive menu is available to view and download here.

From 5pm in the evening Arnou transforms into one of Dunfanaghy's most popular casual dining spots offering a delicious Gourmet Burger Menu which you can view here 


Arnou is also fully licensed to serve a selection of beers, wine, spirits and cocktails. Why not enjoy a pre or post burger beer or cocktail while you watch the sun go down over Horn Head...simply magical!

Please note Arnou does not take advance bookings. We operate a waiting list system and aim to seat all our guests as quickly as possible. Should you have to wait for a short time in the evening you can do so in Arnolds Bar next door where you can enjoy a drink at your leisure. We will contact you there when your table is ready. We also offer outdoor seating and table service should you wish to stop by with your four legged friend!
